Near Longleat, Dorset Country Hotel

Plumber Manor provides popular country house hotel accommodation for family visitors to Longleat Safari Park and Longleat House.

Longleat is surrounded by over 900 acres of parkland, landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, but the estate comprises 8,000 acres of woodlands, lakes and farmland as well. Elizabethan architecture doesn’t come finer or more impressive than Longleat House. It is, without question, one of the most beautiful stately homes open to the public.

Longleat House is well worth a visit when staying at Plumber Manor, perhaps the finest archetypal manor house country hotel and family hotel near Longleat House and Longleat Safari Park.

Voted ‘UK Family Attraction of the Year’ by the Good Britain Guide, Longleat now provides a wealth of activities to suit all ages. Although the wildlife park is still one of the country’s major attractions, there are many other fabulous ways to enjoy yourselves. The Longleat Hedge Maze is a real challenge and even satellite navigation won’t help! Take a trip on the Safari boats to see the sea lions and a trip on the Longleat Railway for some extra fun. The kids will certainly enjoy the Adventure Castle.

If you’re looking for a more sedate day out, the house itself is well worth a visit with a superb display of treasures and heirlooms

Other places well worth a visit whilst staying with us:

Lulworth, Studland, Salisbury Racecourse, Wincanton Racecourse, Mapperton, Wilton House,
Bovington Tank Museum, Athelhampton House, Milton Abbey, Melplash, Parnham, Larmer Tree Gardens and the Salisbury International Arts Festival, the Plush Music Festival, the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival, the Great Dorset Steam Fair, Cranborne Chase, the Piddle Valley and Dorset Opera.
